Sadhu aur Shaitan

Today the so called God-Man, Asaram Bapu, was arrested by police for alleged sexual assault on a teenage girl. This was after a long trail of hide and seek that he attempted playing. But laws of supernatural powers were not in his favor when the ‘Law’ was chasing him. He betrayed trust and faith of lakhs of people who worshiped him for years as their spiritual guru and considered him to be as good as God. ‘His Holiness’ will soon be presented before Your Honor!

In this land of semi-literate and illiterate sentimental fools, there could be many other bapus and babas making somebody’s easy going trust an object of their greed. There could be many more sadhus with even worse motives. We may never hear about their crimes. Because victims might be taking those deeds as actions that would lead them to enlightenment and bliss one fine day in distant future. How many would come out in public to declare what these babas do to them, their money or their self esteem? How many would have ‘sense’ to accept that they are being blatantly ‘used’ as means of selfish ends? How many would ‘see’ what is always hidden behind the veil of ageless wisdom?

For every sadhu there must be a shaitan out there. It’s late but not over. Wake-up your real spirit that is more powerful than all Asarams put together. Each one of us is God. How long shall you roam around? Come home. Hari-Om is must but so is ‘hurry home’
